The Harris Tweed® Journal

Mòinteach

14th July

From the land, comes the cloth, comes the language…

Mòinteach (/mɔːNdʲəx/)
“Moorland”

A world of its own, the heart of our island, the moorland.

Our final Gaelic Moorland Word of the Week comes from ‘Rathad an Isein, The Bird’s Road: a Lewis Moorland Glossary’, a compilation by Anne Campbell.
